Prince William honored former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, Wednesday at Buckingham Palace in London.

“It was an absolute pleasure to be at Buckingham Palace today,” Beckham said, according to E! News. “I’m proud to be British, honored and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge. If you dream big and work hard you can accomplish great things. I’m so happy to share this very special occasion with my parents and husband. Without their love and support, none of this would be possible.”

Beckham’s husband, soccer star David Beckham, was awarded an OBE in 2003 for his services to soccer.

“Wonderful day celebrating with my beautiful family x #BuckinghamPalace,” she wrote on Twitter as she posed with the medal.

Before receiving the honor, Beckham and her family, including her parents, Jackie and Tony Adams, waved to fans outside the palace. Her four children, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, 5, were not in attendance.

Prince William gave out the honor in place of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
